Talking about how to organize a small kitchen, there are many ideas to share. One of the easiest ways is by using shelf organizers wherever you can. These are usually metal racks covered in white rubbery plastic. You can set them up inside cabinets to make a second shelf for dishes or food packages/cans. It can double the use you get from a space. These work well in a pantry closet also, if you are lucky enough to have one. Of course you can add organizer shelves to the inside of a pantry door. Just screw in desk drawer organizers to the side walls. They make similar bins to store potatoes and onions that can go on the bottom of a pantry closet or on a counter. If you can find racks that attach to a wall, they are fairly decorative. Any kind of decorative rack works for this, including floral baskets and bicycle baskets. They don’t take up valuable space on the counter or on the floor of your pantry.
You can also try to use Mason jars (canning jars), decorative jars, or any other jars to display dried beans, pasta, rice, split peas, popcorn, etc. Mason jars are very popular decorating items right now, and it’s a classic country look. Mason jars don’t take up much space on your counter top; can be displayed on shelves for a pretty look, and free up some space in your cupboards.

You should store items on top of your kitchen cabinets to organize a small kitchen effectively. Some are open to the ceiling. It won’t look decorative to store items up there in plain sight, but if you put them in baskets that hide the contents, it can be attractive. If you want to keep it decorative, leave some space between baskets. You can also display a few trays or bowls that you don’t use very often. Intersperse them with the baskets for a pleasing look.
Store your spices on a wall spice rack. Don’t store your spices on a shelf; they take up too much room. You can install mop holders inside a cabinet door. They hold standard sizes of spice bottles well. You can buy a spice rack to hang on the wall or make your own. Hang a steel cookie sheet on the wall. Put your spices in little jars with metal lids. Hot glue is a strong magnet to the lid. Paint the jars with chalkboard paint and write the name of the spice on the jar with a white or silver Sharpie. You might want to paint just a stripe of the chalkboard paint around the jar. That way enables you can still see what’s inside and if you are getting low on the spice. Use masking tape to get the stripe even. You can buy small jars for this, but baby food jars work well. Paint the lids with the same chalkboard paint or any color you want.
